    I've read through the introduction to using KendoUI with ASP.NET MVC about 10 times now to quadrupal check that I've referenced the Kendo.Mvc.dll assembly and included the correct namespaces in my /Views/web.config file. I've rebuilt the project and solution, restarted Visual Studio and even restarted my machine... but I still can't get the Html Helpers to work in this project.

    In a new/clean ASP.NET MVC 3 project I can simply follow the instructions referenced above and everything works fine. Thinking this might offer some clues, I did a diff between the new/clean project file and my project and made sure that my project references all of assemblies referenced by the clean project. Similarly I ran a diff between the /Views/web.config file for that clean project and my own /Views/web.config file.

    However, after all of that, I still can't get the KendoUI Html Helpers working in this project.

    I've read all the forum posts I can find, all of which were resolved by the original posters simply by rebuilding their projects... obviously a solution that hasn't worked for me.

    Clearly there is a requirement that is not documented somewhere and which I haven't been able to detect through any of the diff operations that I've run... but I'm totally stumped here.

    Any ideas? I'm interested in using KendoUI but with a Linq to SQL backend, creating Serialisable DTOs for all of the Linq Entities etc. and hand coding all of the JSON CRUD operations is a lot of work/maintenance... so I was really hoping to get the MVC extensions working in order to take the grunt work out of this.

    Hello James,

     All the requirements are listed in the introduction help topic. There are no other known requirements.

     I suggest you open a support ticket and send us the problematic project as attachment.
